#bloggergate: My thoughts

Hi All

I’ve been away from here for a while due to job hunting (stressful) and trying to get out and see New York. But, there has been a story in the news over the last week and a half that has sparked a lot of debate, and it’s something I’ve been following, so I thought I’d write about it for today’s post. I’m talking of course about the #bloggergate scandal involving the White Moose Café and the Vlogger Elle Darby. It’s sparked quite a bit of backlash toward both sides online, but if you haven’t heard about it, here’s a little summary.

9 actors for the MCU X-Men & 4 for Fantastic Four!

9 actors for the MCU X-Men & 4 for Fantastic Four!

Well, after years of rumours, speculation and hoping, it has been confirmed this week that the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four film franchises are reverting to Marvel. Following a deal between Disney (Marvel’s parent company) and 21st Century Fox – reported to be worth a whopping $52M – a number of TV and film properties will now be under the mouse house’s control.

This means the two popular franchises can now be integrated into the hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, a move that superhero fans have been hoping would happen for years, and one that will surely take the franchise to new, even more successful heights.

8 Documentaries on Netflix worth your time

8 Documentaries on Netflix worth your time

I’ve been trying to get back into Netflix recently after falling out of watching stuff on there for a while. Seeing as I am the one paying for it, and my brother is the one getting the most use out of it, I thought it best to start getting back into it. Rather than let the Netflix vampire have it all to himself, at my expense.

I’ve found myself gravitating towards the documentaries they have up, and I’ve found some really interesting ones. Everybody is probably familiar with the big, really popular ones like Making a Murderer, The Keepers and Amanda Knox. But here are 8 that I’ve watched recently, that may not be as well known, but are still as engrossing.

Halloween Movie Marathon

Halloween Movie Marathon

Happy Thursday Everyone

As Halloween is fast approaching (seriously, where is the time going?) I’m back today with a post geared towards the holiday and the movie buffs among you. One of the best things to do on Halloween is to get all cosy on the couch with a copious amount of sweets and chocolate, and watch some really scary films. Or even some less scary ones we used to watch when were younger, but can’t help watching again and again. With so much to choose, it can be hard to decide which ones to go for. So, I’ve taken the hassle out of it for you.

Tips to help you fit more reading in

Happy Hump Day All

Ever since I was little, I’ve always enjoyed reading, which I credit my Mam for. Being a reader herself, she always had a book on the go, and encouraged me to take it up as a pastime as well. If you’re like me, you’ll have a pile of books sitting on a shelf (chair, desk, floor, etc.) that are waiting for you to tackle them. But sometimes it can seem hard to find the time to fit reading in for various reasons. So, today I thought I’d share a few handy tips if you feel like you’d like to keep on top of your reading schedule, and start working your way through that pile of stories you’ve been meaning to get to.
